July 10-11, 2020

The event will be held entirely from remote and all the sessions will be streamed online.

The goal of Think Open Rovereto workshop is to bring together people from different disciplines and backgrounds to discuss the latest insights related to open science, with a special emphasis on cognitive neuroscience. This year main topics will be: replication and reproducibility; open access; standard ways to arrange, analyze and share neuroimaging data.
